Cops Nab 5-Year-Old for Wearing Wrong Color Shoes to School
YahooNews ^ | Jan 18, 2013 | Suzi Parker

In Mississippi, if kindergarteners violates the dress code or act out in class, they may end up in the back of a police car.

A story about one five-year-old particularly stands out. The little boy was required to wear black shoes to school. Because he didn’t have black shoes, his mom used a marker to cover up his white and red sneakers. A bit of red and white were still noticeable, so the child was taken home by the cops.

The child was escorted out of school so he and his mother would be taught a lesson.

Traumatise a child, yeah, that’s real smart. That is the kind of extremist mindset that typified Nazism in Germany. Does anyone still think that something just as radical as Nazism can’t happen over here?

It IS happening here and this is a prime example of the progressive fascist mindset of groupthink.

It brooks no variance...thinking is not allowed.

The child will either be broken to obey or will be lost to rage.

You know, you might have just hit on something that has been eluding me for some time. That is, why are we spiraling down the toilet and why do “some” people look up to a “strong man” like Obama to solve their problems?

It could very well be that there are TOO DAMN MANY LAWS on the books now. When I was growing up I always heard that what made America unique was that we were “A Nation of Laws” not men. We were taught that no one was above the law be they a ditch digger or the President of the United States.

Now it seems to be if you are a “Democrat” then the law doesn’t matter. And now people look to them to show the way through the morass of laws that they themselves were instrumental in shoving down our throats.

What a strange land I find myself in compared to my childhood and I find myself just as lost as the rest it seems.

That’s a great point. I definitely have mixed feelings about teachers having guns. It’s bad enough the cops have them. I had teachers who would have shot some kids for insulting them. I had quite a few crazy teachers. One of them recently shot and killed his wife and blamed it on his daughter’s boyfriend.

And we think the South might rise again on the 2A? Not if this stands.

I see a rich little boy after a law suit that is certain to come.

Use this, media, as your example Obama tyranny, for low information voters. They won’t like hearing of this.

Sad to say, there are many here just as eager to pass laws, but “our laws are better.”

Good job. Good lesson. Wonder why inner city yute hate cops? If I was that cop, I would have broke rank, [faced the consequences] and not taken the call.

Most schools have discretionary funds. The principal could have stepped in. But then we couldn’t have *favoritism*, could we?

This is based on an ACLU and NAACP ‘study.’ No school or school district is named, There are no specifics whatsoever just a general condemnation of MS. And no one questions it, just knee jerk reactions here?

Exactly. You could turn that around in my case. Since there’s no way I would ever trust the government schools with my kids, why would I trust them to have guns?

Wrong! The Nazis would have just given the kid a pair of black shoes taken from a murdered Jewish kid. /sorry

Seriously, though, even the Nazis weren't that anal about crap like this.

• Students on a school bus were throwing peanuts at one another. Because one of the peanuts hit the female bus driver, five black male high school students were arrested on felony assault charges.

• A student was sent to a juvenile detention center for wearing the wrong color socks. It was considered to be a probation violation from a previous fight.

I can’t wait for the day when parents can just plunk their kids in front of a computer and let them learn at home.

I don’t doubt that this story is true. I’ve read enough about zero tolerance policies and the idiots who are running public schools not to believe it.

Public schools that have zero tolerance policies are toxic to kids.
